Posted by Deepak Kumar on May 12th, 2017

High pressure laminates are a form of decorative laminates in which layers of Kraft paper impregnated with melamine resin are infused with decorative paper and a protective overlay. In the final step, the resulting laminate is attached to the substrates at high temperature and pressures. The difference lies in the range of pressure used in the manufacturing of low pressure laminates.

Designers and architects also recommend high pressure laminates for a variety of furniture and cabinetry needs.

Benefits of high pressure laminates:
